Overview

Venture north into Malaysia and visit Kuala Lumpur and Malacca on this private, full-day trip from Singapore. Check out the Petronas Twin Towers, Batu Caves, and other highlights of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s high-octane capital; and spend the afternoon experiencing the colonial-era charms of UNESCO-listed Malacca as your driver-guide sheds light on its history. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included, as well as admission fees and round-trip private transport with a driver-guide.
  • Full-day private day trip to Kuala Lumpur and Malacca from Singapore
  • See top Kuala Lumpur attractions including the Petronas Twin Towers and Batu Caves
  • Visit UNESCO-listed Malacca, a trading port with a rich colonial past
  • View Malacca’s landmarks and take a 45-minute river cruise
  • Admission fees, plus breakfast, lunch, and dinner included
  • Round-trip private transport, including hotel, port, or airport pickup and drop-off
Begin with early morning pickup at your Singapore hotel, Singapore airport, or cruise port depending on your wishes.

Then, relax into the leather seats of your private, air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy the 3-hour drive to Malacca - the UNESCO-listed Malaysian state that was once the country’s busiest trading port. Use the onboard WiFi if you wish.

On arrival, choose from a typical western buffet breakfast or a delicious local Chinese breakfast of Roti Bakar (toast topped with coconut jam),  and Teh Tarik (pulled tea). Absorb the historical atmosphere and learn about the city's Dutch, Portuguese, and British colonial heritage as you take in historical St. Paul’s Church on St Paul’s Hill, St. Francis Xavier statue, the Porta De Santiago fort, 18th-century Christ Church, and Queen Victoria Fountain.

See the Chinese Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, and peruse the stalls and red-brick houses during a stroll along Jonker Street. Stop to sample some famous local pineapple tarts and coconut-milk cendol dessert, and enjoy a 45-minute cruise along the Malacca River, passing quaint colonial houses, temples, and churches.

Make the scenic journey to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital. Refuel with a sumptuous local Indian lunch of Thosai (savoury pancake with sides), before heading to the famous Batu Caves on the edges of Kuala Lumpur. View the Hindu shrines contained within these sacred caves, and then continue into the city to the Petronas Twin Towers. Visit the observation deck of these world-famous towers for bird’s-eye city views, and admire five other must-sees of the National Palace, Sultan Abdul Samad (former supreme court and government offices of the British colonial administration), National Monument, National Mosque, and Independence Square. 

Finally, head to a Malay-style food court and savor a tasty local Malay dinner of coconut-milk rice with fried chicken before returning to Singapore, where your tour finishes with a hotel, port, or airport drop-off at about 9pm, depending on traffic.

Please note: in the event that the Petronas Twin Tower's observation deck is closed (ie: Muslim festivals, Mondays etc), guests will have an outdoor photo stop of the Petronas Twin Towers, and visit the KL Tower's observation deck instead.

In addition, if you are interested in staying overnight in Kuala Lumpur and exploring it independently before a next-day return to Singapore by coach, (all at additional cost), please advise at time of booking.

This was a fantastic tour! Saw so much of Malaysia and the tour guide Edison was very knowledgeable, helpful, kind and friendly. He made sure I saw the highlights. This is an excellent tour and highly recommended

An awesome tour with our knowledgeable guide, Eddison. Job well done. Met our expectations of the tour. The climb at the Batu Caves was delightful though too tiring with 272 steps of the stairway to get to the caves. The Petronas twin towers were fantastic. We were guided to the 86th floor to have a magnificent view of the city. Great tour in Malacca with its historical places. Meals were wonderful. This tour is recommendable.

Excellent tour! Exceeding expectations! Have no doubt, this is a long day. You are picked up at your hotel promptly at 4:30 am and you'll return no earlier than 9 pm that night. The tour guide Eddison was beyond excellent, attentive, prepared, we loved him. The two drivers alternated during the day to stay fresh, they were great, very professional. Wear shorts, dress for hot and humid weather, bring sun-screen. Be ready to cover a lot of ground in one day. We let Eddison pick the places to eat and let him order for us, it was perfect, tried some things we wouldn't have known to try. I could go on, but the summary is, this tour was exactly as advertised and well worth the price.

My wife and I had a fabulous tour of Malacca and Kuala Lumpur with Eddison, our driver/guide for the day. He was very knowledgeable about the places we visited, paced out a very busy day so that it was quite manageable, and most importantly for a tour that involves some very long stretches of driving, he was an excellent driver. He also chose very good places for our breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a variety of local cuisine that added to our enjoyment of the day.

Note that this tour makes for a very long day. In our case, pick-up at our hotel in Singapore was at 4:30 in the morning, and we didn't return until 9:30 that evening although unusually heavy traffic on the highway in Malaysia slowed our return down considerably. This means you will not be able to linger overly long in any one spot if you want to see everything that Eddison has packed into the tour, but still, if you want to get a taste of Malaysia while staying in Singapore, this is a great way to do it. Yes, it's a long day, but being able to visit the very historical city of Malacca and the quite beautiful Kuala Lumpur, including a trip up to the observation deck in the Petronas twin towers, was well worth it. We're very glad we did it, and would recommend this tour, and Eddison, to anyone who would like to experience a little bit of Malaysia while staying in Singapore.

This is really worth the long day out, myself and my wife had a great time. Excellent tour guide Edison has great knowledge Picked up on time, all sights on time, would recommend him a big pay rise

There is no getting round the fact that there is a lot of driving, but never more than 1 1/2 hours. Despite this it is a very good way at seeing two places in Malaysia. You reach Malacca early for breakfast and the sun just rising. Although places are not open, the old fort, water front are always open and there is plenty of time to wander round without any other tourists. The boat trip is fun - look out for Monitor lizards. On the way out there was a large group but on the way back I was alone and had a personal tour. Kuala
Lumpur is a large city, but you see the main sites. It is worth including the Petronus Tower visit as the views are amazing! Each meal was a different type with Chinese for breakfast, Indian for lunch and Malaysian for supper. Very filling but all very tasty and gives a food flavour for the country as well. A summary card for each city was given at the end which helps remember everything I saw.

Edison was a superb host and did a grand job showing us some amazing points of interest. He is also a very skilled driver which is important bearing in mind we spent a lot of time in travelling by car.

This was an excellent introduction to Malaysia in 17 hours! Yes, Edison picked us up at our hotel in Singapore at 4:00 am and left us off at 9:00 pm that night. We traveled by car through the border and countryside to Malacca and then on to Kuala Lumpur making 9 or 10 significant stops on the way. Eddison not only arranged and facilitated all entrie and meals, but gave us wonderful historical and cultural information along the way. I highly recommend this one day trip for those Short on travel days but wanting a feeling for Malaysia.
